Microchip ships its one millionth development tool

Microchip has said it has sold its one millionth development tool during the 14th annual Worldwide MASTERs Conference held in Phoenix, Ariz. Microchip also honored Mike Nicholson, Engineering Manager from Price Electronics in Winnipeg, Canada, as the recipient of its one millionth tool.

"We've been using Microchip development tools and PIC microcontrollers since 1999," Nicholson said. "We fell in love with Microchip's development tools and support, and a lot of their application notes have really helped us with our designs." Nicholson added, "We've learned a ton over the last three days at the MASTERs Conference. It's great to have the 1 millionth development tool in hand, and we look forward to using it."

"Microchip has a reputation for providing the industry's best tools and support, and the shipment of our one millionth development tool demonstrates that embedded designers have found this reputation to be well founded," said Mitch Little, vice president of Microchip Worldwide Sales and Applications. "Microchip's unique in-house tools strategy is one of the main ingredients in our customers' success, enabling us to continuously enhance tools with advanced features while retaining control of quality, delivery and costs."

"From evaluation kits, programmers and in-circuit debuggers to state-of-the art in-circuit emulators that run full speed with tomorrow's highest speed technologies, our MPLAB tools offer simplicity, power and affordability," said Derek Carlson, vice president of Microchip Development Tools. "Microchip stands alone among semiconductor companies by offering a universal and truly integrated development environment that supports our entire line of 8-bit, 16-bit and 32-bit PIC microcontrollers, and dsPIC digital signal controllers, ranging from 6-pin to over 100-pin devices."
